Auditions for Neil Simon's play, "Jake's Women" will take place at the Lofte Community Theatre near Manley on Monday, July 26 and Tuesday, July 27 at 7pm.  There are parts available for six women, one man and one young girl (age 10-15).  Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.  Kevin Colbert will direct.  Performance dates for the show's run are Aug 27-29, Sept 3-5, 9-12. 

The script revolves around Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life.  He is facing a marital crisis by daydreaming about the women in his life. Jake's women include his first wife who was killed in an accident, his daughter, his bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is leaving Jake, and a prospective third wife.

GUYS AND DOLLS

The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley opens its summer musical , "Guys and Dolls," on July 16.  Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, this romantic comedy has high energy, lots of laughs and classic songs as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.

Director Kevin Colbert has been working with a cast, crew and orchestra of nearly 30 people.  Included in the cast are Jim McKain, Anna & Levi Stroebel, Doyle Hanshaw, Phil Meggers and Natalie McGovern of Omaha; Jim Knierim, Anne Riha, Maylea Bauers and Brenda Jones of Louisville; Ross Thomason and Millard Carnes of Plattsmouth; Kurt Lamb and Kevin Holdorf of Manley; Nick Jensen and Scott Muldoon of Lincoln; Don and Tessie Stedintz of Council Bluffs; Samantha Colbert of Weeping Water; Jeff Johnston, Wade Mumford and Alyssa DiPaolo of Elmwood; Renee Jensen of Unadilla; Megan Fowler of Springfield; Charles Robbins of Wahoo; Mike Palmreuter of Bellevue; Katie Schmitt of Murdock; Sarah Dowling of Avoca and Mimi Ostmann of Eagle.

2010 marks the 100th birthday of composer Frank Loesser and the 60th anniversary of "Guys and Dolls'" Broadway debut.  Over the years, several notable actors including Jerry Orbach, Nathan Lane, Patrick Swayze and Jessica Biel have all strutted their stuff portraying the memorable characters.

Performance dates are July 16-18*, 22-25*, 29-31 and August 1.  Curtain times are 7:30pm on Thursday-Saturday and 2pm matinees on Sundays.  Please note that Sunday, July 18 and 25 also have 7:30pm evening performances.  General admission tickets are $16.  Reservations can be made by calling the Lofte ticket office at (402) 234-2553.
